by director riskin or david chu or john -- more than half of the meeting voted for the chinatown extraction. then somehow the pagoda palace was cited as the preferred site. suddenly, it's like joel campos, the original developer of the site he was given permission for condos and restaurants and commercial space two or three years ago but we were told that he ran out of money. suddenly he was offered a two year lease, and for god sake a suppolmental eir renewing all its permits which have expired. 27 parking spaces for 19 condos, that would not be allowed now. all the push is for the pagoda theater. i insist all people want to stop at chinatown.

to reform our payroll tax. that is an incentive not to create jobs. i know the board president david chu is working on possibility this there -- possibilities there. i look forward to working with him. we've targeted efforts to revitalize areas and bring industries here with the tax holiday and proposal introduced yesterday relating to parts of the tenderloin to provide some payroll tax relief to encourage businesses like twitter and others to go there. >> the governor has proposed eliminating funding for redevelopment agencies. what is your opinion of the plan? what are your thoughts on the value of redevelopment agencies? >> i think the plan is over- broad. i do not support it as it relates to san francisco's model of redevelopment. our redevelopment agency does tremendous work in san francisco. a lot of projects like treasure island and what is happening in hunters point, those kinds of projects would be difficult to achieve without redevelopment. a redevelopment agency is the largest source of affordable housing creation in the city. it has been a huge asset. i understand there are o
we have. >> thank you. i echo commissioner david chu's comments. i also want to know sometime last year, we had on this plan i noted that we - that the t a project managers moved on to the airport and is one of the very best project managers in the city. and that despite having such a super project manager we've still got a lot of agencies involved and we've seen not just a better market project which is the biggest example but even in smaller projects one agency wants to move forward and other agencies have issues so we're not as coordinated as we need to be. we want to make sure that all agencies are working together effectively. i think over the last month we have - i want to make sure that we're not going to have any delays. i want to say that we should have a clear order so when theirs delays we can resolve the issues >> thank you we have general manager ed here. >> good morning, mr. chairperson, members of the commission. commissioner chu honored to be here at your last meeting as the commissioner of the t a. so i appreciate the opportunity for me on behalf of the whole sup
of starbuckss, a guy name david chu who said we don't want to be involved of we want to be neutral. we don't want to do anything more. we're neutral. we're staying out of it. doesn't sound like starbucks is particularly worried. it was just a question of ingress and egress. at this point the closest store to our truck location is 290 feet away. you have to cross a public street to get to a starbucks. yes, it's been 300', but as mr. kwong will tell you, it's just a factor that may be considered by dpw. there are lots of other factors that could be considered, including the fact that starbucks is a gigantic name-brand that people will go to no matter what. they have wi-fi and sell a full menu. in terms of like foods as my client has mentioned he make his living only with the sale of espresso drinks and coffee. if you look at the guidelines and this is what the city policy he was relying on when he submitted his application says that a coffee cart should not be considered like a diner. all of the people who have been speaking except for starbucks, which isn't here have said that they are oper
